The perception of how we see ourselves
or how we would like to see ourselves.
A combination of qualities and characteristics
that make us all individuals.
We are all different, we are all distinct.
Each of us posesses certain attributes that
make us all heterogeneous —
and yet we are all homogeneous.
We congregate in this pseudo-metropolis
known as a university —
Taking many of the same classes,
drinking in the same bars
and living in the same pre-stylistic cubicals.
But still the self persists.
Some find solace in the company of others,
some find it within themselves.
Cluttered within the masses, and yet still detached
Individuals trying to remain that way,
trying to retain that last shred of insanity.
Sometimes we cannot.
Occasionally, we get caught up in the confusion
and lose the self.
But it can never really be lost.
It is an intangible belonging that
makes us special — makes us individual;
makes us . . . The Self.
Self Portraits — Is there any better way to fully express
individualism? On the following pages, KSU students have
taken the opportunity to shape the Chestnut Burr with their
own special brand of zany college humor in living color. Burr
photographers set up their equipment outside the Student
Center and Bowman Hall, allowing passing students to "do
their thing" in front of the camera. The results? A picture is
worth a thousand words.

Freshman Orientation week can be a lot of fun — that is — unless you are a
freshman, or so the story goes. If the underclassmen participating in the 1 983
orientation events were not having a good time, they sure didn't show it. Events
ranging from sports, for the more athletically minded freshmen, to the dreaded
orientation classes kept the estimated 3,000 underclassmen busy during the week.

When you get right down to it, there are only
three kinds of people: drinkers, watchers and
listeners. Drinkers, of course, are interested only
in chasing the ever-elusive buzz, while the more
sophisticated watchers and listeners take in the
sights and sounds. The Hot Legs contest (left) at
the Robin Hood is definitely a sight-oriented
activity . . . and then some. Mother's (left) on the
other hand, is geared toward the reggae crowd,

The Chicago Knockers female mudwrestling team brought their two-hour act to
McNasty's and, it seemed, most of the people in the packed house were from Kent State.
Well, that might have had something to do with the fact that a KSU senior, Dave
Flazynski, financed and promoted the event. "Raging Apache" (left) and "Ebony Eyes"
(above) were two of the six wrestlers who challenged themselves, two KSU students and
W'KDD air personality Matt Patrick to tag-team battles in the mud. Unfortunately for
one of the McNasty's staff members (right), he got a little too close to the action. The
event took place on Feb. 9, 1984.
"I remember your name perfectly, but I just can't think
of your face."
— William Archibald Spooner
In the beginning, there was on campus and off . . .
In the dorms, for instance, there are literally thousands of
available rooms. Most of those rooms are similar, if not identical.
It leaves a lot to the imagination.
But when the students move into their rooms shortly after
summer break, a bizarre transformation suddenly takes place.
Institutionalized settings suddenly take on personalities of their
own, formed in the likeness of their creators.
It is really amazing how much corruption can take place in a
dorm type atmosphere. Dorms are the places where freshmen
begin to unlearn all of the habits that they managed to pick up in
Studying is the first to go.
Waking at early hours is not far behind.
For some reason, there is an unwritten law that states that less
than three out of five college freshmen will survive in the college
system until graduation.
The dorms act as a natural Darwinian stabilizer. They weed
out the weaklings — only the strong will survive.
To better facilitate the process, the university insures that each
student will be paired with a roommate complete with his/her
unbearable idiosyncrasies, late night/early morning habits and a
penchant for the activities in life that you detest the most.
When you finally have the chance to move off campus, it
seems like all your troubles are water under the bridge.
Landlord — (Land' — lord) n. See Ogre
There are so many things that can go wrong when you're living
in a house that doesn't belong to you. One of the primary hazards
Sure, everybody complains about dorm life, but
there are certain good points when it comes to on-
campus life. Other than the noise, inconveniences
and restrictions that go with the territory, dorm
living gives KSU students a chance to meet one
another and find out what life is all about on a first-
hand basis. In other words, you're on your own kid
— good luck!
of off campus life also happens to be one of the biggest
advantages — the ability to party at will.
Yes, there are absolutely no visitation restrictions like there
are in the dorms, so you could theoretically invite an unlimited
number of partiers to stay for days on end. In this way, you could
very effectively assure yourself of never seeing one cent of your
$300 or more security deposit. It is a simple law of supply and
demand: if you destroy the supply of undamaged property in any
given dwelling, the landlord demands money. It's just that
Sure, both dorm life and off campus dwellings have their own
drawbacks, but they also offer unique advantages. They are
something that we just have to learn to live with and accept.
The grass is always greener on the other side, or so the story goes.
No matter where you live — at home, in dorms or off campus —
there are good and bad points for each living environment. Money
and location are two primary considerations when looking for a
semester residence. But it isn't always easy to find a place which
meets both requirements so, like everything else in life, it is a game
of give and take.
Dick Scesniak: Head coach, KSU football team
We're interested in winning this year. I'm not interested in
what's going to happen next year or the year after that. Let next
year take care of itself. Our problems are the same ones that we
have been talking about from the beginning. Our biggest
opponent is still Kent State.
A good offense should be able to move the ball, and right now,
we just can't do that at all ... I think they've (the team) got the
ability to do what we're asking, but they've got to stop fooling
themselves. A good offense is 1 1 guys working together. We're
not even close.

I can describe how 1 feel. It made me happy for the player and
the students. It meant so much to the community — the
academic people, the students and the townspeople. (Excerpted
from the Daily Kent Stater)
Thomas Wills: Fall 1983 editor-in-chief, the Daily Kent Stater
Being editor of the Stater is a real drain on your time. Sure,
there's a lot of pride in having the job, but it takes so much time,
it seems like there's no time for anything else.
1 missed a lot of classes, and I never missed classes before that
- it was terrible. My grades slipped, and that put me in a bad
mood because I wasn't used to that. I had always managed to
keep pretty good academic standards, but during my semester as
Stater editor, they really slipped.
The Stater took a lot of my time, and in a way, that's
regrettable. But there's no other way to do it. I wasn't working
with a huge staff — I was working with a core staff of 10 or 15
really dedicated people.
I didn't really have a lot of friends outside of the Stater other
than the people that I went to school with back at home, and I
think there's a reason for that. It's easy to build relationships with
people that you work with and see every day.
1 feel sorry for journalism majors who haven't had a chance to
work for the Stater, because 1 think they are really going to have
to fight hard to get a job. If they don't have the motivation and
the dedication to do it in a college setting . . . You know, the
Stater is really a proving ground for what you're going to do after
you get out of college. And if you aren't motivated enough to do
it here, then what makes you think an editor is going to give you a
job? That's part of the reason that I've worked as editor of the
I'm proud of what we've done this year . . . I'm not proud of
what I've done, I'm proud of what we've done. As everyone at the
Stater knows, it's not just a one person deal.
Laurie End: Teaching Fellow, psychology
I've been teaching at Kent State for three years as a teaching
fellow in the psychology department, and it has been quite an
experience. The first two years, I was here doing research and
had minimal contact with undergraduates, but I did enjoy the
people I talked to, and I was looking forward to my third year
when I would start teaching. The first class I taught was a
developmental psych, class that met on Sunday afternoons! I was
a little surprised to be teaching on the weekend, but as teaching
fellows, we can only ask to teach certain courses — we have very
little choice about when the class will meet.
The only thing that I really don't like about teaching is
assigning grades because, in many cases, I don't think that the
exam is representative of what the student knows. But, since I
plan to continue teaching, I suppose that assigning grades is a
necessary evil that I will have to deal with.
One of my goals as an educator is to generate interest in
psychology where there may have been little or no interest before.
And if I can accomplish that (with even just one student), I feel
like I've accomplished something.
Cindy Ott: Director of Aquatics, KSU Intramural Department
As Director of Aquatics, I can hire, train, evaluate and can fire
the lifeguards and aquatic personnel. I also schedule and
promote any aquatic tournaments and special events dealing with
the department. The exposure to all different kinds of people is
what I enjoy most about my job. Just meeting a lot of different
people and interacting is fun for me.
There's really nothing I don't like about my job. I do get
frustrated, though, when not enough people participate in some
of the clubs and tournaments that take place. We need more
people to get involved. It's frustrating to have to work so hard to
reach our goals as far as getting participants.
I think there are many reasons for the lack of student
involvement. Many people just don't feel comfortable with
certain types of sports. Each activity attracts a certain type of
person. Of course, we can always afford to publicize our
programs more — there's never too much publicity.
I'd like to add different tournaments to the department. Each
year, I try to add one new activity or program to try to reach a
well-rounded majority of the (Kent State) population.
KSU offers basically the same opportunities as other
universities, but we are better in that we have more of a variety of
activities. I was a graduate assistant at Ohio State and, although
they are a much larger school, I noticed that they do not have as
much variety. Many students just aren't aware of all the
opportunities that we at Kent Sate have to offer.
Tina Magazine: sophomore, political science
From my experiences at Kent State, I really feel that I have
learned a great deal — not only about other people, but about
myself as well.
Since I'm involved in a number of university activities, I feel
that I have had the chance to make myself a more well-rounded
I am currently involved in the Air Force ROTC, and I hope to
become an interpreter for the United States Government. I am a
member of the KSU bicycle club and I am also a member of the
Italian Society. While I am attending Kent State, I am working
part-time as a secretary to earn extra money.
1 am majoring in political science and Russian.
One of the reasons that I chose Kent State is because of its
excellent political science department. Another big reason is the
I really do think that KSU has one of the nicest campuses in
Ohio. We have a lot of fields, trees and flowers that are just
perfect to take advantage of during the months that we have nice
The people at Kent State are really friendly, and I've had
some of the best times in my life with these people. I'm really
looking forward to my next two years!
Dr. John Binder: Assistant dean of Student Life
As the assistant dean of Student Life, I am responsible for all
campus clubs and organizations. It may not be the easiest job,
but out of everything I've been involved in since I came to Kent,
this is my favorite.
The opportunity to work with students is what makes the job so
rewarding. Many administrative jobs force you to be farther and
farther away from people, but I am in constant contact with
I love today's KSU students. I've seen many changes over the
years. I've seen girls go from clod-hoppers to bib overalls to what
they are today, and I think it reflects a complete change in
attitude. In the 70's, everyone was anti-government and anti-
administration, but they have definitely matured and developed
very positive attitudes.
My goal is to get more students involved in the organizations
on campus. The average student group has only nine or 10
members, and one reason for this is that people don't know what
is available to them. Once student awareness is increased,
hopefully, involvement will also improve. The students are the
institution — Kent can't survive without them.
Academically, KSU is on the rise. Previously, we had no
competition — Akron and Youngstown State were just city
schools. Now that they have expanded, KSU has also ascended.
Compared to other schools in the region, I think we're the best.
Bob Nation: Detective, University Police
I believe the most important function of the police department
as a whole is to provide services to the university community. The
best part of my job is that I have the opportunity to work in
environmental conditions that bring many types of people
together. We have people from the inner city, the country,
international students and people from each class of society.
There are so many different facets of the university.
My job as a detective involves investigations into the criminal
activities of students, faculty and staff. I investigate the situation,
evaluate the facts and then bring formal charges against the
defendant. I also make sure that the university policies and
regulations are followed.
In a sentence, our department tries to keep everybody honest.
It's hard, because there are so many different areas that must be
I think that in the last two years the police department has
really changed. We're trying to gear ourselves to the community,
and become more responsive to the needs of the university.
I am very interested in raising student awareness. We need
more community involvement. I'd like to see individuals who
have never had contact with the police to make some contact. I
don't mean that they should get into trouble — that's not what
we focus on. We're service-oriented. We're always happy to talk
with students about any service that we provide. Our goal is to
promote interaction with the police department.
All in all, I would like to see more people become acquainted
with the many services we provide. We want to help people in all
parts of the spectrum.

Bob Curtis: University Bookstore keeper
Running the bookstore has become a much bigger concern
than when I started working here at Kent State. I began my job
thirteen years ago at the old Student Union, handling all of the
film and art supplies. I had experience working in an 'essentials'
store during my 24 years in the military, so it didn't take much
adjustment for my new job here at the bookstore.
Of course, now the bookstore has expanded, and it took some
getting used to at first. For instance, the beginning of each
semester can get pretty hectic with everyone buying books and
supplies at the same time.
But I don't have to be involved much with floor operations. The
major part of my job is to pick up the supplies from the
companies, check them in at the store, price them and make sure
they are stocked on the shelves correctly. I've had some
commercial art training, so I also make the signs and artwork
used in the store. Being able to use my art talent is one of my
favorite parts of my job.
1 like the security of my job. I've had the chance to see lots of
changes take place at Kent. The students have matured, the
school has grown and I feel comfortable and happy to be a part
of the university.
Tim Aten: Senior, telecommunications
I've been promotions director for WKSR for two years and a
disc jockey on the same station for three years. I started when all
the station had was a little studio stuck in a cubbyhole, so the
move to the new location is a big improvement.
I am basically responsible for every visible aspect of WKSR,
such as newspaper ads, flyers, posters and even our logo.
I was interested in art all through high school, and started
college as a graphic design major. At that time, however, I was
also interested in radio, so I went to a meeting for WKSR. From
then on, it was a steady climb from disc jockey to operations to
Actually, I am the first true promotions director the station
has had. Years ago, there was virtually nothing visual about the
station. Using my art background, I was able to increase its

After graduation, I would like to get involved with the media
in a way that I can use all of my talents. I know it won't happen
immediately — that's too much to ask. But one day I want to be
able to utilize everything: art, my writing ability and radio. I
direct a comedy show on TV-2 called To Be Announced, which
we started in 1981. It grew in popularity and became an official
student organization, but, as far as I'm concerned, it has already
reached its peak. Because of that, I devote most of my time to
Eventually, I would like to get into directing — especially
films. I think that would be the ultimate creative outlet for me. I
know it's a lofty goal, but it's something I'd really like to do. I
don't have much experience in that area, but I know I could do it
if given the chance.
Ron Spangler: Instructor, KSU Theater Department
The great thing about being a part of the theater here at Kent
is the fact that one never stops learning. The opportunity to
perform here allows me to keep the performance experience fresh
in mind and help me bring it with me to my acting classes. I no
longer remain the teacher who simply instructs students, but now
I can share the same joys and frustrations as they do.
Performing in Peer Gynt offered me a wealth of growth
potential. The character was a wild one — a demented director
of an insane asylum who should probably be locked up instead of
locking people up. This offers an actor, in conjunction with his
director a wonderful freedom to explore and find the best way to
express this unique personality. I also had to have a German
accent — something that I have never been required to do in
performance, so I was certainly offered with a challenge there.
The performance experience, itself, is an exhilarating one. To
be given a chance to share ideas and emotions with an audience
is the greatest privilege an actor can be given. It makes me realize
just how lucky I am to be making a career out of what gives me
the most joy. Not that, at the time, its all fun, but with each
experience — good or bad — you learn more about the craft.
And who could ask for more?
Dr. Richard A. Heimlich: Professor, geology
My goal as an educator is to help guide students through the
vast amount of knowledge that has accumulated in my own area
of geology. I also strive to acquaint students with how the earth
works and the importance of the earth in everyday life. You
know, people aren't always aware of that. There will definitely be
a greater need for geologists in the future because they are
actively involved in discovering all of the resources needed for
society to advance.
I'm interested in providing a broader perspective on how one
finds oneself at the young age of a college student and how to
plan for the future in dealing with life in general. Though this is
an ongoing need, students today are, perhaps, a bit more
practically oriented toward doing the things necessary for a
career. They are a little more serious minded in purpose.
On the other hand, one of the worst aspects of teaching is
seeing the frustration of a few students in every class resulting
from their inadequate preparation or lack of motivation for
college work. It's the job for the professor to motivate, but
students must bring their own motivation first.
Sylke Benner: Prentice Hall RSA
There are many things to like and dislike about my job. Being
a Resident Staff Advisor (RSA) can be very rewarding. With
your staff, you learn to recognize and accept your own faults and
strengths. The personal growth and experience is tremendous.
Being in contact with people all the time helps you to get to
know yourself, but also helps you know how to handle and deal
with other people. Everybody thinks that having room and board,
plus $100 a semester, is the big reward from this job. But,
actually, it's knowing you have reached out to fellow students and
helped them through some difficult times or made them feel
welcome at such a large university.
The aspect I dislike most about this job is having to discipline
people who aren't mature enough to take responsibility for their
To be Greek, or not to be Greek . . . That is the question. For
what reason would any rational individual want to degrade
himself or herself by joining one of Kent State's 10 sororities or
I have always tried to avoid passing judgment without first
reviewing all the information, so I naturally assumed that the
only logical way to learn more about the Greek system would be
to join the Greek system. Right?
Well, I never actually went that far, but I did buy a satin
jacket (in my case, it said Chestnut Burr). I was what Greeks
might call a G.D.I. (God Damn Independent). In other words, I
was an outsider.
To say that I was anti-Greek would be an admission of my own
Sure, I didn't know much about Greek life, but I did have a lot
of preconceptions which seem to be shared by all G.D.I.'s. I'm not
really sure where most of these stereotypes came from, but I'm
almost positive that television and movies had something to do
with it. But, on the other hand, my trip to Indiana University
influenced and reinforced many of my already growing
While driving around the Indiana campus, lost in a state of
confusion, I somehow found myself cruising down "Frat Row."
After seeing estate after estate of limestone mansions and a few
dozen fleets of assorted Audi's, Porsche's and Mercedes, my
beliefs were only reinforced. As a matter of fact, some of these so-
called houses were so stately, they made the governor's mansion
look like Jed Clampet's cabin.
There is no way you can compare a Greek system like that
with the one at Kent State. Until last fall, many of the Kent
fraternity houses were on the verge of being

condemned. Through their own initiative (and a
little coaxing from the University) the houses
standards were brought up to a livable condition.
On the other hand, the Kent State sorority
houses provide some of the better accommodations
around. The Alpha Phi house, for instance, has
eight separate apartments, each of which has its
own bathroom and kitchen.
Most of the sororities have their own cooks,
some have maids (but most sororities divide the
chores among their members) and a few have
And for only $1,00 per semester, this life of
luxury could be yours.
The fraternities, on the other hand, must fend
for themselves. If you're hungry — order a pizza.
If the house is a mess — don't worry, someone will
clean it . . . eventually. And if the grass needs
trimming, simply borrow a goat from one of the
local farmers. If that doesn't work, give the pledges
a few pairs of scissors.
You can have all of this, plus a scenic view of the
neighbor's leaf-clogged downspouts for only $450
So, what does it take to be Greek?
Henri Adjodha (above and below
One semester (pledge period), a 2.2 GPA and $25 a month are
the only prerequisites for Greek life, but to succeed as a Greek,
you have to have a desire to get involved. Take for instance, the
Alpha Phi's second annual Cardiac Arrest in February. With the
help of Campus Police and the Volunteer Ambulance Service,
the Phi's arrested willing victims and held them for bail (about
$50). The proceeds went to the American Heart Association.
So, what about the parties? I must admit, the Greek system
does have its share of great parties. The Sigma Alpha Epsilon's
Paddy Murphy party was a great example. They have a four day
wake to mourn the demise of a supposed former brother (I think
it's just another excuse to party.)
The most fun that I had in my pseudo-Greek existence, was
the Chi Omega sorority formal. Guys, if you ever have the chance
to attend a formal, go! You'll have a great time — a fantastic
time, because your date picks up the tab.
Let's face it. There really isn't that much difference between
Greeks and any other organization. Either way, you are
associating with a certain group of people.
The Greek system here at Kent State has a lot to offer and it
shouldn't be condemned without being scrutinized first. I still
don't think that I would join a fraternity, by my outlook on
Greeks has changed. Maybe you should check the Greek system
out — you might be surprised.

For most students, the decision to get a campus job is a
financial one. Some campus workers use their money to pay
tuition and offset the rising cost of education. Others use money
to try and enhance their quality of living. Either way, there are a
lot of campus jobs out there and students who need them are
likely to find themselves working any job from cook to bus driver.
Although the jobs don't leave much room for promotion, most
students can find a job to suit their tastes. Obviously, some jobs
require more labor and responsibility than others, but they all
have one thing in common: they provide services for other
One of the more visible jobs on campus is the Resident Service
Advisor (RSA). According to Lake Hall RSA Michael Zagger,
the RSA position is one of the least structured jobs on campus.
There are no set working hours for an RSA, although they are
required to remain in their room or be available during duty
hours. For this reason, Zagger said he feels that the work he does
as an RSA is different from other campus jobs.
Whether you are feeding thousands of Kent State
students, or making sure that they get to classes on time,
student jobs can be the most thankless positions on
campus. The pay is probably not the greatest and the
hours spent at work tend to gnaw away at your social
life, but when the pay check comes in, it all seems a little
"We are responsible for the safe operation of the dorm, and we
try to make sure that the residents are comfortable in their
surroundings," Zagger said. "Our job has a lot more
responsibilities than most jobs, but we also receive greater
For their service, RSA's receive free room and board and are
also paid $100 at the end of each semester. In return for this,
RSA's are scheduled to work one duty night each week and four
weekends a semester. They are also required to present three
social programs each semester.
"One of the hardest parts of being an RSA is trying to gain
the student's respect," Zagger said. "You have to be very careful
to keep things under control while, at the same time, letting the
students have a good time and enjoy living in the dorms. The
biggest thing you have to remember about being an RSA is that
it's only a job."
On the other end of the prestige and pay scale is the cafeteria
worker. It has been said that just the mention of cafeteria food is
enough to strike fear into the average student's heart. Although
they are not responsible for the taste of the food, cafeteria
workers say they are the ones who get most of the complaints
from the students.
Although working in a cafeteria atmosphere may lead to a sort
of natural inferiority complex, Jim Ervin, a Prentice cafeteria
employee, said the job does have its merits.
"We hear a lot of complaints, but there's not much we can do
about it. Most of the students just serve the food," Ervin said.
"I work short hours every day, and it's almost like having a class
at the end of the day that I get paid for."
"My job teaches you a lot of respect for people. I feel you have
to go above and beyond what my job requires. If you want to, you
can have a good time at work," Ervin said.
One of the campus jobs which everyone hopes they never have to become
the recipient of, is that of the Health Center employees. Members of the
Volunteer Ambulance Service (above), unlike other campus workers, are able
to go to classes when they are on the job. Workers can go to class, but remain on
call and are notified by radio if there is an emergency somewhere on campus.
"I'd like to think of myself as the Jack Benny of fish-n-chips,"
Ervin said. "I think you should try to put some personality into
Some campus jobs really have no description at all. It may
seem that area desk workers have nothing to do other than stand
around and socialize with other residents. In reality, nothing
could be farther from the truth.
A good description for the job of area desk worker could
probably read: Wanted — individuals willing to work odd hours,
solve hundreds of problems weekly, cope with an endless number
of questions and still manage to keep a smile on his/her face.
Area desk workers are responsible for the smooth flow of
students in and out of the dorms. They are also responsible for
maintaining the university's vast communication network. Each
time they go on their rounds or leave the room when on duty, the
RSA's are required to report to their area desk.
Because of the nature of their job, desk workers are required to
be on duty during some of the worst hours that the campus job
scene has to offer. The area desks remain open 24 hours a day, so
you can always count on someone at the desk — even at four a.m.
Tony Trigilio, employee at the New Front desk in Prentice
hall, said he likes his job because he gets to meet new people.
"I like to leave people with the impression that we're
efficient," Trigilio said. "If I do that, then it leaves the
impression that the whole university is."
Trigilio said that he feels his job is one of the best on campus
because it balances responsibilities and rewards, even if the
students can become a little abrupt at times.
"1 have found very few people to be rude with us, but I'll
usually reply with a smile when someone is," he said.
Even with all the hassles, most of the student workers say they
would not quit their job. For one thing, the money is just too
important. But the most important reason is also the most
obvious one. Without the student workers, it would be impossible
for the university to function. Students play a vital role in the
daily operations of the university, and that is something that will
not soon change. Students are willing to perform crucial
university jobs for relatively low wages.
Nothing could make more sense.
As any staff member of the Chestnut Burr could
tell you, campus jobs can be a real hassle sometimes.
But, when faced with tuition, books, room and food,
not to mention various other fees which seem to jump
up from nowhere — it's amazing what a student will
do to earn the minimum wage.
Aviation is not something that you would find every Tom,
Dick and Harry talking about at Kent State.
As a matter of fact, many people aren't even aware that KSU
has its own airport. Yes, it's true, Kent State owns and operates
its own independent airport which is run by KSU students and
All work and no play . . .
According to the aviation school students, the KSU program is
one of the toughest in the nation. High standards go with the
But what do these people do for fun?
This past year, the Kent State Flying Club enjoyed one of its
strongest years ever, tripling its previous membership and,
according to club president Roger Quinn, formed a "solid
organization promoting general aviation to the university and
"Not many people wanted to join the club in the past, because
it seemed so shaky to them," Quinn said. "At the beginning of
the year, we owed the university several thousand dollars. So our
officers worked on collecting money owed to us by members,
which paid off because we paid our debt back and came out $400
in the black. The extra money helped us sponsor more events for
This year, the Flying Club offered such programs as the FAA-
sponsored safety seminar, held in April, a
field trip to Dayton's Wright-Patterson Air Force Base during the same month and an
earlier trip to the NASA Lewis Research Center in Cleveland. The group also produced
a monthly newsletter, Notums, which includes the names of Airmen who have just
earned their FAA license.
In an attempt to broaden its appeal, the Flying Club made efforts to include people
with little or no flying experience.
"At this time, we are quite excited about getting involved in flight training," Quinn
said. "Once the details are worked out with the insurance company, we will be able to
offer flight training to those who wish to have an FAA license."
Quinn said the idea is especially exciting because it means that anyone will be able to
join the club, even those people who have never flown an aircraft before.
One of the advantages of learning through the Flight Club, Quinn said, is the
individual instruction that each

student receives. The student has the chance to learn through the
club at their own pace. If they were taking the course through the
university, all required instruction must be completed in four
One of the big attractions for aviation students to join the
Flight Club is the reduced rate offered on renting aircraft from
the KSU airport.
"I think that the best feature of the club is that any member
with an FAA license has perfect access to the university
aircraft," senior Darryl Borg, a two year member of the group,
"In the past, our group served as just a means for pilots to
cheaply rent aircraft," Quinn said, asserting that the club is
trying to expand its horizons. "Now we are trying to be more of a
club for pilots."
Mike Smith, a junior who has been with the Flight Club for
nearly two years, said that his time spent with the club has been
well worth the effort.
"The greatest thing about the club," Smith said, "is that all of
us can get together and talk about one shared interest — flying."
Athletics trainers, the unsung heroes of the sports department,
are responsible for the supervision, care and prevention of all
athletic injuries that occur during the course of a season.
According to head trainer John Faulstick, Kent State has one
of the two smallest training staffs in the area. It consists of the
head trainer, two full-time assistants and eighteen student
trainers. This may seem substantial until you consider that they
are responsible for nineteen sports and over 500 athletes.
"The time we spend doing our jobs is unbelievable," said
Faulstick. "I work from 6:30 every morning until 6:30 or 7:00 at
night, and after a while it takes over your whole life."
Faulstick's responsibilities are extensive, ranging from
establishing conditioning programs to designing meal plans for
the athletes. "My duties go beyond the obvious," he said. "I not
only have to monitor the progress of every sport, but also make
the teams' travel arrangements, fit equipment and generally
make sure that everything runs smoothly."

Aside from the physical aspects of a trainer's job, there are many
psychological factors involved. The training staff is responsible for keeping the
athletes in a positive frame of mind, especially when they are recovering from
"It's hard for an athlete to regain his confidence once he has been injured,"
Faulstick said. "Part of my job, and that of the other trainers, is to help him
overcome any anxieties he has because of that injury and what caused it. Our
primary objective is to get the athlete back into an active environment, but we
first have to make sure he is ready, both mentally and physically, to return to
where he was."
According to the staff, KSU has an excellent training program. "Working in
the program has given me a lot of hands-on experience that will be valuable in
my future career," said senior Cathy Sellers. "I hope to be an official trainer at
a university after completing my education, and I feel proud to say that I gained
my experience at Kent State."
"The strongest part of the program is the chance to work with so many
different people," said Staci Bishop, a junior in the training program. "Being
with the athletes for such a long period of time, we see a whole different side of
them. Most of the KSU students don't realize how hard the athletes have to
work, and it really gets to us when they insult them for losing a game or making
The competition for athletic trainer jobs is difficult. Each
person has to go through a careful selection process before he can
become a trainer. The financial rewards are minimal, but it's the
only way to learn the requirements of being an athletic trainer

watching them enter the program, and three or four years later

For all of us Midwesterners who try desperately to keep up
with the latest news from the New York fashion designers by
ritualistically buying copies of Cosmopolitan and Vogue — I
want to know just how Calvin, Oscar and Gloria have come to
call all of the fashion shots.
Well, up until now, New York-bred Rumplestiltskins who can
spin straw into gold have taken the lead at the design helm. But
all of that might change.
Look out New York. The KSU School
of Fashion Design and Merchandising is
on the rise. Director Gladys Toulis (far
left) said she expects her school to be very
selective with its students. The school is
privately funded, and has been helped out
by fashion designers Shannon Rodger
(left) and Jerry Silverman, who donated
portions of their own private collections
for the design museum.
The Midwestern Rumplestiltskin's day has come, and the gap
between Calvin Klein and Kent State has narrowed after the
establishment of the School of Fashion Design and
"We are like a new baby," Gladys Toulis, director of the
newly formed school, said. "We have been born, but we don't
know quite what we're going to be . . . The future is yet to tell."
Parents to the $18 million privately funded project are Jerry
Silverman and Shannon Rodgers, the highly acclaimed
American fashion design team.
In May of 1981, the acknowledged pillars of the American
fashion industry announced that they were giving $150,000 in
seed money and a 2,500 piece collection of period costumes,
paintings, silver, china and art objects valued at $4 million to
establish the school of fashion design and a fashion museum at
"The idea is to set up a college-level school in the Midwest
comparable to the Fashion Institue in New York, the only other
school with a similar program in design," Silverman said in a
Lora Kendall, student of the fashion design school and
president of the Fashion Student Organization, said she is excited
about the prospects offered by the new school. Kendall said she
hopes to work for Channel or Calvin Klein someday — a goal
which probably is in the minds of many students.
"I'm very pragmatic," Toulis said of her fashion school. "I am
not saying that we are going to graduate hundreds of top name

Hundreds of KSU students poured onto the field
after the Golden Flashes beat Eastern Michigan 37-13,
ending a 2 1 -game losing streak, the longest in the
nation. Actually, the crazed Flash fans jumped out on
the field before the game was over, viciously
attacking the symbol of their frustration — a lone goal
Crazed KSU students and frenzied Flash fans erupted onto the
Dix Stadium field, hundreds of them, all hoping to have their way
with the football goal posts.
University police stepped aside, allowing the students to mount
the stadium's uprights and ride them to the ground, looking like the
Marines that raised the flag on Iwo Jima, but in reverse.
These KSU students were patriots, in their own minds if nothing
else, and had a sacred duty to destroy the monument to the 21-
game Flash losing streak.
The streak, which started two seasons before, brought Kent the
dubious honor of holding the longest losing streak in division I-A
As the end of the game drew near, some Flash fans refused to
believe the impossible . . . Kent was beating Eastern Michigan.
"Everyone ..." a voice screamed out, ready to lead the crowd on
to riot, "I want you to pray to your favorite god."
But the crowd had reason to pray.
In two previous games, the Golden Flashes had been beating
their opponent, then, in the last quarter, something snapped. It was
midnight — Cinderella turned into a pumpkin, and the Flashes
lost. So it goes.
On November 5, 1983, it was destined to happen. The KSU
football team pulled the elusive win out of thin air, or so it
Shortly before the end of the game, over-anxious fans began to
inch their way over the end zone guard rail, then onto the field.
The goal post was dead meat.

it was the end to end all ends, as it were. As far as most Flash
fans were concerned, the season was over . . . and the Flashes had
Once upon a time in a magical land of mist and fog, there lived
a handsome king and his beautiful queen. Animated characters
frolicked across the countryside in celebration of the special
day . . .
It could be the beginning of a fairy tale, but then again, it
would also describe the atmosphere surrounding the KSU
Homecoming weekend activities. Instead of mist and fog,
though, there was rain which threatened to cancel the weekend
entertainment. But despite the weather, hundreds of spectators
turned out to watch the parade while hundreds more braved the
elements and witnessed the Golden Flashes' 21-20 loss to the
Ohio University Bobcats.
The theme for the 1983 Homecoming was "Salute to the
Comics," a theme which was carried over into most of the
weekend's events. A one-mile fun run kicked off the
Homecoming Day events, which was followed by the parade.
Although the spirits of Golden Flash fans were in high gear on
Oct. 22, the Flashes fell to one of the most discouraging defeats
of the season.
Although the weekend was threatened by typical
Ohio weather, the 1983 Homecoming festivities were
still able to keep students and residents of the city of
Kent interested. Homecoming queen Sandy Learner
and king Mike Maczuzak (left) braved the elements
for the crowning ceremony, which took place during
half-time at the KSU-Ohio University game.
The Golden Flashes were leading Ohio University 20-0 in the
fourth quarter of the game. After a few key plays and some major
Flash breakdowns, the Bobcats were leading 21-20. Although
KSU came within yards of scoring another touchdown, the
elusive victory never came.
The game was supposed to be the highlight of the weekend's
activities, but that was not the case.
Even though the Flashes lost, head football coach Dick
Scesniak said he was still optimistic about the rest of the season.
"It was a difficult struggle, but we emphasize the positive,"
With the game appearing to be an easy victory in the first
three quarters, Scesniak said his team may have become
overconfident. "It's not over 'til it's over," Scesniak said, quoting
cartoon character Yogi Bear.
But soon, the loss was forgotten as the more adventurous
Homecoming participants scattered around the city of Kent to
take part in the various activities, including the Oktoberfest,
sponsored by the Downtown Kent Bar Owners Association.
As tradition dictates, the Homecoming weekend activities
ended with the Homecoming Dance, sponsored by the All-
Campus Programming Board. King Mike Maczuzak, sponsored
by Verder Hall, and queen Sandy Learner, sponsored by Alpha
Xi Delta, reigned over the event.

The story of the May 4, 1970, Kent State shootings is an old
one — a 14-year-old one to be exact. It is old enough and far
enough removed that it seems like the worst of dreams, or maybe
something out of an old B-movie.
It is old enough, in fact, that most of us have no real memories
of those days. We only know what we have been taught and what
we have experienced — especially during our time here at Kent
There are facts that everyone knows: In response to then-
President Richard Nixon's announcement of the invasion of
Cambodia, students across the country protested.
Here at Kent State, the shouting was as loud as anywhere.
The downtown area of Kent was trashed as students were
hurried out of bars for reasons they did not know. The ROTC
building was burned to the ground as students watched and
cheered. Students were stabbed by bayonets of the National
Guardsmen, brought to the campus to quell the disturbance.
But instead of dousing the flames, the Guard fanned the fire of
Bob Sorino. Herb Detrick (below)
For some reason, even after 13 years, the May 4 commemoration ceremonies
have managed to draw media attention. For better or worse, it will always set
KSU apart. Alan Canfora (above, far right) as he appears today, is pictured on
page 102, minutes before he was wounded on May 4, 1970.
According to a survey conducted by the Chestnut Burr, students become more
educated about May 4 the longer they attend the university. In a random
sampling of students by class standing, it was determined that 26 percent of all
freshmen surveyed did not know the year of the May 4 incidents or the number of
students killed. By comparison, only seven percent of the seniors surveyed were
wrong. The survey also found that students who have attended Kent State for
more than two years are more prone to attend the May 4 vigil or commemoration
ceremony. Of those students who do attend either event, the majority identified
themselves as curious spectators in the event. (May 4 photo courtesy of John Filo)
The students began to protest the "occupation" of Kent State by
military forces. The students wanted the Guard off campus as
bad as the Guard wanted off campus.
But that was not the case.
Shortly after noon on May 4, a crowd gathered on the
Commons. Members of the Guard drove by in a Jeep, telling the
protesters to disperse. The crowd jeered. The Guard threw tear
gas. The crowd moved.
A rock-throwing contest, not won by either side, ended almost
as quickly as it began and the guardsmen began to withdraw
from the field where they had pushed the students.
Then, as the soldiers were about to crest the hill by Taylor
Hall, the students began to taunt them about their apparent
It was then that the worst 13 seconds in Kent State's history
With no warning, the Guard turned and fired into the crowd of
students. In the blink of an eye, four students lie dying. Nine
others were wounded in varying degrees of severity. The campus
was immediately closed and courses were completed through
Since that day, many have said Kent State would never regain
its stature. Many thought the university would never get over the
stigma of the shootings. Many were wrong.
The Center for Peaceful Change was established as a living
memorial. The candlelight vigil and commemoration programs
still exist in honor of the fallen. Most have indeed come to
terms with the tragedy of May 4.
No matter what happens, Kent State will continue to be
known as the place where four students died protesting the
expansion of the Vietnam war. But this need not be a negative
aspect of the university's reputation. We have learned a great
deal from the tribulation and there is a great deal more yet to
The Chestnut Burr:
Yesterday . . .
Although the names and faces have changed over
the years, the Chestnut Burr has been around to
document the growth of Kent State. The pictures on
these pages are taken from old yearbooks which are
stored in the Burr archives, a collection which spans
our 70 year existence on the KSU campus.
. . . and Today
For over 70 years, the Chestnut Burr has been documenting the everyday life of the
KSU student, making an earnest attempt to tell the college story like it really is. Over
the years, styles have change — and so has the Chestnut Burr. We at the KSU
yearbook are almost like a family — we share the good and bad times, we fight like
brothers and sisters — but we wouldn't want it any other way.
All things are not always what they seem to be, or
sowe"d like to think. On a sunny February day with
temperatures reaching above 60 degrees, KSU
students somehow manage to find time to do all the
things that a long winter has prevented them from
doing. Even though some people were able to take
advantage of the unseasonably warm weather, some
unfortunate students, like the foreign-looking cast
member of the KSU production of Peer Gynt (left),
were forced to spend their time indoors.
Free time. It's something that most KSU students
claim they can never get enough of. But when they
do find time for themselves, it can be a real relief.
Some people spend time by themselves, and some
people prefer to make time for friends. The May
1983 G.Q. Fashion show and G.Q. Cabaret are good
examples of large group activities (above and right).
You can act outrageous or lounge quietly on the
Student Center steps; both are worthwhile
investments of the afternoon and evening hours.
After all, it sure beats studying.

Ask any Kent Stale student and they would be more than glad to tell you
that there is more to college life than serious studying and other academic
pursuits. Members of the Kent Sailing Club take a weekend off to do what
they do best (left), while two KSU students take time out to "clown around"
during the rainy Homecoming parade.
The Stray Cats weren't alone as they "strutted" in to the Kent State
Memorial Gym on October 31, 1983, for the Black Cat Ball. The event,
sponsored by the All-Campus Programming Board, drew an estimated
3.300 fans who "Ranted and Raved" as the band performed hits from
its two albums. Opening for the Stray Cats were 14 Carat Soul, a
tremendously well-received A'Capella group, and The Times, a Cleveland-
based Techno-Pop band.
It is like Christmas for the "big kids." Ghosts, goblins, witches . . . It's all
part of KSU's weirdest evening. Maybe it's a chance for some of us to "let it all
hang out," so to speak. But it is a time for people to go out on the streets of the lit-
tle town of Kent, and show the townspeople what college people are "really" like
. . . Just a bunch of fun-loving intellectuals out to have a good time.

A few minutes after 6 p.m. on February 26, 1984, stage hands at
KSU's Stump Theater began to strike the set of Peer Gynt.
In a way, it was just the end of another play. But it also marked
the final KSU play ever to be directed by Dr. William Zucchero,
Acting Director of the School of Theater.
Zucchero, who has been working with acting students at Kent

his retirement in July.
According to Zucchero, Peer Gynt, a play by Henrik Ibsen, was
one of the plays that he has always wanted to do. Zucchero said
Peer Gynt was the first play he read in college and he was
instantly intrigued by its complexity.
"At that point, I had never seen the play done before, and, by
God, if I was going to see it done, I knew I was going to have to
do it msyelf," Zucchero said. "That play just piqued my
curiosity. It was so complex, it was a real challenge."

Although the 1984 Winter Olympics, held in
Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, were not a repeat of the 1980
success story, the game did have its fill of individual
success. Scott Hamilton from Bowling Green, Ohio,

When Billy Johnson (left), the American downhill skier, took to the slopes in Sarajevo, he
said there was no doubt in his mind that he already owned the gold medal. Johnson, the
outspoken World Cup downhill champion, was recruited to the U.S. team in 1980, but was
thrown off the squad soon after that for being out of shape. Although hopes were high that the
American Hockey team could repeat the rags-to-riches success story of 1980, the young U.S.
team was never able to make it to the medal round. The team was led by 18-year-old Pat
LaFontaine, first-round draft pick for the Stanley Cup champion New York Islanders.

devotion of its players — even if it means self-sacrifice.

When the leaves change color and the
weather begins to turn bitter cold, people
in Northeast Ohio know it's the beginning
of a new season — namely autumn.
For over 1,200 Kent State students,
these seasonal changes signal the
beginning of an even more important
season — intramural football.
As usual, the 1983-84 season had a
higher-than-average participant turnout.
The program has been expanding and has
traditionally been among the top four
sports in the intramural program.
Five different groups were represented
in the 83-84 program, the largest of which
was the independent division with 48
teams. The independent division was
followed by the dorm, open, fraternity and
women's divisions which had from eight to
36 teams each.
The three-week season was followed by
a two-week tournament which ended on
Nov. 29 with the championship game.
The big winners in tournament play
were Kappa Alpha Si, who won both the
Super 9 and the fraternity division, and
the Animals, who won the women's
Mike Charles, captain of The G Spots,
explained the popularity of intramural
football: "A lot of the guys played football
in high school, and this is the only
opportunity they get to play organized
"There's a lot of competition on the
field," Charles said. "Of course, some
teams do better than others, but I think
everyone has a real good time."
Devotion is something that most intramural
football players could write a book about. Because
the sport is played late in the fall semester, when
temperatures begins to drop and the hours in a day
decrease, staying warm is as important as winning
the game itself.
According to tournament coordinator
Andy Deyo, intramural basketball was one
of the most popular and competitive of all
the intramural department sports during
the 1983-84 season.
"It's really a very competitive
atmosphere — perhaps too competitive at
times for the participants," Deyo said.
"Intramural basketball is probably one of
the most popular sports that our
department has to offer."
Deyo said that many of the participants
in the 1983-84 season have played some
sort of organized sport in high school and
wanted to continue their association with
that particular sport while they are still in
college. In other words, the intramural
program provides students with a viable
alternative to the time and energy to
maintain a career in intercollegiate sports.
But even with the athletic aspect, Deyo
concedes that many of the students are
involved with the program for social
"Sure, there's a certain aspect of social
cohesion between the players," Deyo said.
"It gives them a chance to do something
rather than go downtown at night."
During the 1983-84 season, over 200 teams
competed in the Kent State intramural basketball
program. All leagues, except for the new KSU
league, competed once a week. Eight leagues were
represented, including the men, women, wheelchair,
fraternity and co-rec divisions competed in the cold
winter months — some of them trying for first place
honors, and most of the teams competing for nothing
more than fun.

It isn't a competition, and there really isn't any
high pressure to speak of. Gymnastics in Motion, for
the most part, is a chance for the members of the
men and women of the KSU gymnastics team to
exhibit their talent and grace in the relaxed
atmosphere which, for a short time, transforms
athletes into actors.

While some students were soaking up the last
rays of summer the members of the KSU Bicycle
Club were engaging in a slightly more physical
activity. The Little 500 Bike Race, sponsored by
the KSU Bicycle Club, the Intramural
Department and Undergraduate Student Senate,
was designed to test the stamina of participating
bikers while still managing to provide fun. Eleven
teams participated in the event, and the winning
team won $60 each for their efforts.
Rebuilding a team can be a long,
tough and frustrating process.
Unfortunately, the Kent State
volleyball team was no exception to the
For the second year in a row, head
coach Sheree Harvey was faced with a
young team which was not yet
experienced enough for competitive
conference play. The 1983 edition of
the KSU volleyball team suffered the
loss of two key players early in the
season — a factor which affected the
team's play for the rest of the year.
Laurie Mehlenbacher, the team's
only senior, was redshirted before the
season started after she broke a bone in
Sophomore Penny Howard was
sidelined most of the season with
torn knee cartilage.
After injuries, the team was reduced to one junior, two
sophomores and six freshmen.
The Lady Flashes started the season off with one win, followed
by a seven game losing streak which severely affected the morale
of the young players.
"The team's attitude is something we've had trouble with most
of the season," Harvey said in a Stater interview. "Individuals
who should have come through for us weren't ready . . . and that
just caused a bad chain reaction."
Kent State ended the season with a dismal 3-22 overall record.
The team was led by junior Kim Maddox, who was ranked in
the top 10 players in the Mid- American Conference throughout
Freshmen standouts included Lynda Shepler, Pam Laake and
Lisa Heeman who all helped add to the consistency of the young

improvement over the previous season's last place
The Lady Flashes were also a considerably
stronger team, with 13 out of 20 players returning to
give the squad the experience needed to keep a team
afloat in the MAC.

There was a new coach and a new
system for the Kent State football team as
they finished the 1983 season with a 1-10
overall record, 1-8 in the Mid- American
Conference. The Golden Flashes finished
ninth in the conference.
Before the season started, head coach
Dick Scesniak said that the Flashes would
be "entertaining," and despite the team's
poor record, a few bright moments did
manage to shine through.
The high point of the season was
undoubtedly KSU's 37-13 win over
Eastern Michigan on Nov. 5. The victory
broke the Flashes' 21 -game losing streak,
which was the longest in the nation.
The victory was not the only story of
the game, though. Some of the 7,020 fans
at Dix Stadium decided they could not
wait until the end of the game to tear
down the goalposts, so they ripped them
down while there were still four minutes
remaining in the fourth quarter.
"Something like that just reflects
today's society," grunted Eastern
Michigan head coach Jim Harkema.
KSU football players were not quite so
cynical about their fans' unbridled
"We loved it," KSU senior linebacker
Russ Hedderly said.
Another high point in the season was
Kent State's away game with Toledo on
Oct. 29. The Golden Flashes lost 37-34,
but the Rockets, undefeated MAC leader
at the time, had to score a touchdown with
less than two minutes remaining in the
game to prevent an upset.
Bob Sorino, Mickey Jones (below)
In that game, two players who
transferred to KSU before the 1983 season
broke or tied six team records. Junior
quarterback Stu Rayburn threw for 419
yards, gained 405 total yards, completed
23 passes and threw four touchdowns.
Junior split end Ken Hughes broke marks
in yards receiving (201) and touchdown
One of the most unbelievable games of
the season was the shocking Homecoming
loss to Ohio University. KSU led the
Bobcats 20-0 in the fourth quarter and the
Homecoming Day crowd was going wild.
But the Bobcats scored three touchdowns
in the rain and mud to pull out a
heart-stopping 21-20 win that must have

Rising to the occasion, the Lady Flashes
finished their season with a 3-5 record in
conference play, and a 1 2-8 overall record.
This year, Kent State added seven
freshmen to an already young squad.
Captain Beth Stefanchik, the team's
midfielder, was the only senior on the 1983
KSU field hockey team.
Co-captain Mary Jo Hall, a second year

University, led the team in scoring with 17

With a painful season behind them,
the Kent State ice hockey team has
turned a bleak past into a promising
future. The Golden Flashes finished
last season with a dismal 6-25 overall
record, but managed to finish the 1983-
84 season with a record of 16-11.
The squad, under the direction of
second year head coach Don Lumley,
fielded a number of sophomores who
recalled the lessons they learned as an
inexperienced freshman team.
Although the team will be losing
only two seniors from its lineup, both of
them were ranked among the top four
scorers during the 1983-84 season.
Tom Viggiano, who became KSU's
only four-year letterman this year, led
the team in scoring with 77 points
(33 goals, 44 assists) in just 28 games.
With that record, Viggiano took over
the position of all-time leading scorer.
Jon Straffon, the Golden Flashes'
captain, was among the KSU scoring
leaders consistently during the season.
Sophomores Chris Baker (26 goals, 36
assists) and Mark Spring completed the
top four scoring chart for the 1983-84
One of the brightest elements of the
team during the season, was the
emergence of freshmen goaltender Adam
Brinker. Brinker, a St. Louis native, beat
out junior Doug Bowen for the starting
position. After a slow season start, Brinker
sharpened his shot-blocking skills and
reduced his goals against average by
nearly two goals as the season progressed.
Two of the major highlights of the
1983-84 season were the five-game and
the seven-game winning streaks that the
team put together to break the old mark
of four games, set during the 1980-81
After losing three straight games in
early November, the Flashes routed
Niagra College twice, swept two games
from Penn State and won the first game
of a two game series with SUNY-Geneseo.
KSU outscored its opponents 45-17
during the streak, which was
broken at the Ice Arena when Geneseo's
Ice Knights outscored the Golden Flashes
The win streak stayed in the record
book for only a few short weeks, though,
as KSU soon built up a seven-game string
that lasted through early February. The
streak began with a two-game sweep of
the Bowling Green Club team in the final
games of 1983. When the Flashes returned
from winter break and knocked off
Nathaniel Hawthorne by margins of 4-2
and 8-3, stretching the streak to four
games. St. Bonaventure fell victim to KSU
the next weekend with the Flashes
notching 8-6 and 6-3 victories that
extended the streak to a record six games.
KSU then traveled to Chicago the next
week for a two-game set with Lake
The Flashes, whose trouble was evident
in their away record. After winning the
first game of the series 7-3, an overtime
goal in the second game handed the
Golden Flashes their first loss in eight
"Everybody helps everybody" seemed to be the motto for
the KSU gymnastics team which pulled together and
finished one of its best seasons ever.
The 1984 season saw a team which was able to rely on
the power of its youth — an attribute that was a drawback
for many of the other KSU team sports.
"With only two seniors, the squad was almost wholly
built on youth," women's coach Janet Bachna said. "The
youth helped us. I think it made us a lot stronger."
The Lady Flashes were led by team captain Dawn
Roberts, Debbie Rose, Patty Tobin, Kathy Collet and
Bernie Dennie, the only upperclassman of the group.
The team, which had a penchant for Snickers bars and
Michael Jackson, had its 200th win during the 1984 season.
The men's gymnastics team held a 4-1 Great Lakes
Intercollegiate league record, and had hopes of winning the
"It's probably the finest season we've had for men's
gymnastics at Kent State," Coach Terry Nesbitt said,
referring to the many personal and team records which
were broken during the season. "You'll find that
gymnastics is different than any other sport ... it doesn't
matter if we come out with a victory — it matters if we get
a good score even if we do lose, in some cases, we have a
victory when we lose."
The 1983 swim season was the year
of streaks for the KSU women's team.
The year began with three consecutive
losses (at the hands of Pittsburgh,
Bowling Green and Eastern
Michigan). Then came the win streak,
with four straight victories over
Wooster, Slippery Rock, Cleveland
State and Wright State. At the end of
the season, another losing streak hit,
and the Lady Flashes dropped
decisions to Ball State, Ohio and

One of those accomplishments, was
the performance of freshman diver
Molly Lang. Lang saved her best for
last as she qualified for the NCAA
regional diving competition. Freshman
standout Brenda Bury, a strong
freestyler, was consistently among the
team's top scorers.
Although the KSU men's swimming
team's season was also filled with
streaks, it was not filled with winning
and losing streaks. The whole season
was a streak — a 10 meet losing streak
which gnawed at the character of the
KSU team. Coach Oberlin summed up
the season when he reluctantly said,
"It's really frustrating for the team to
go to each meet knowing there's not
much of a chance of winning it."

senior Marty Lucas (134) and junior

soundly defeated both teams.
Lucas, with a 19-6 season record,
finished third in the MAC and ranked
second on the team. Junior Doug Dake

To most observers, the 1983-84
women's basketball season would not be
considered a banner year. But for
members of the team, it was a time when
many of the goals set early in the season
were achieved. Head coach Laurel
Wartluft said that, despite the final
record, she was pleased with her young
team which finished with a - record.
"I think that we did really well for being
involved in a rebuilding year," Wartluft
said. "One of the most important things
you have to look at when you have a
young team is that they don't get down
and upset with themselves — You have to
be very careful that the team does not give
The 1983-84 Lady Flashes were a
young team — most of them freshmen
and sophomores — who lacked experience,
not ambition. Although the squad had
stabilized by mid-season, they were
suffering on the floor due to the lack of a
solid team leader.
Although she said it was difficult,
Wartluft resigned herself to the painful
prospects of rebuilding a basketball team.
"We took our lumps, and I think that
made me realize that you have to be very
patient with a young team," Wartluft
said. "We have to focus more on the
future and how to build a solid, consistent
program that is representative of Kent

The Flashes, whose 15-13 record in
1982-83 was the school's best in 32 years,

Accordingly, K.SU was picked to finish
ninth in the Mid-American conference.
However, the Flashes pulled together

The Flashes opened the season with five
victories in their first seven games.
Included in that span was an 87-72 win

than 3,500 at Memorial Gym.

Again, the infamous contest graces the pages of the
Chestnut Burr. Of course, any group (alleged or real) with
$30 can throw together a group shot of their own. But it
takes talent and raw creativity to mastermind an
entertaining shot worthy of winning the Burr group shot
Actually, groups shots tend to be rather boring and
repetitive, so we at the Burr feel it is our responsibility to
encourage originality. If it accomplishes nothing else, it
manages to keep the yearbook staff from losing all touch
with sanity when the time comes to sort out 40 identical
group shots. Also, it helps make an otherwise dull section of
the book look slightly more exciting.
Judging the 1984 contest were Bob Sorino, veteran Burr
editor, and Mickey Jones, photo editor. Although the
judges were surprised with the overwhelming lack of
originality, they agreed the groups they chose were
deserving of recognition.
The winning contest picture was of a group which took
second place in the contest last year. KSU's own To Be
Announced, the wild TV-2 comedy troupe, was chosen on
the basis of originality and/or appropriateness.
The runner-up spot was claimed by the Daily Kent
Stater, which chose Ray's Place as the location for
its group shot.
For their efforts, the Chestnut Burr generously refunded
the money paid by both groups.

What can I say this year that I didn't say the last time
around. For the past two years, I have had the dubious honor
(at least I think it was an honor) of being editor of this
I've spent so much time here in Taylor hall that the School
of Journalism wants to charge me rent. But on a salary of 50
cents an hours, I don't think they would have much success if
they tried to collect.
This position took a lot of time. Most of that time should
have been spent in classrooms, or at least doing homework. It
was a drain physically, mentally and especially on my GPA.
But when 1 leave Kent State in May, I take more than a
diploma. I take experiences, knowledge and friendships. I
think I value the friendships more than anything.
When 1 decided to stay on as editor, I made a list of all the
things that I was and wasn't going to do (things like not
missing class and blowing off deadlines).
I think I lost the list sometime during the summer.
Was it worth it? You're damn right. I wouldn't trade any of
the problems or the rewards for anything. The experience of
running this yearbook has taught me more about the working
world than anything else I've done here at KSU.
Finally, the time has come to beg teachers to forgive me for
missing all of their classes. It is time to call mom and dad to
say: "Hi?! Remember me?" It is time to indulge in one of the
greatest collegiate activities ever to be invented — sleeping.
Putting out a yearbook takes more work than anyone could
know, but it's not an individual effort. It takes a lot of
dedication from everyone.
Brian, for all the times that you asked me stupid questions
and I gave you stupid answers, I hope you know I was only
kidding. I know you'll do a good job next year. Hopefully,
you'll do better than I did.
Mickey. Dear Mickey. You yelled at me more times than
my mother, but I love you anyway. I have great faith in you
and I hope I've been as much of a help as I have been a pain.
Well, Matt . . . We've done it. We've been through hell two
years in a row. I would never have been able to do it without
you. Aren't you glad I begged you to take the job?
And now. Finally, since this is the last time I will be in the
Burr, I want to thank the two people who have helped me the
most — my mother and father.
Well folks, now that the sentiments and apologies are over,
it's time to say good-bye. I'm graduating.
